16 oz. imitation crab meat (preferably flaked style)
1/2 cup celery – finely diced
3 Tbsp. red onion – very finely diced

1/2 tsp. Old Bay seasoning
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup mayonnaise

1 1/2 Tbsp. fresh dill – chopped (or 1/2 tsp. dried dill)
salt & pepper – to taste


In a large bowl, place the imitation crab, celery, red onion, Old Bay, lemon juice, mayonnaise, dill, salt, and pepper.

Toss gently to coat.

Either serve immediately or cover and refrigerate. Salad will keep in the fridge for up to 2 days.

How you serve this is the big question! We love piling it on a crusty baguette with lettuce or eating it with crackers. Other ideas to consider:

  • Scoop into a butter lettuce cup
  • Add pasta for a seafood pasta salad (chilled)
  • Bake puff pastry shells and fill with seafood salad
  • Hollow out a tomato and fill it with seafood salad.
